This is, after all, an episode of Crime Does Not Pay, so I wonder why MGM thought they needed a director of Tourneur's stature for such a pedestrian piece. It is just a straight story of an arson-for-profit gang who burn stores facing bankruptcy for a cut of the insurance money. True to the theme of the series, the inevitable happens to prove its point.
Of course, the main point of interest is in spotting cast members with familiar faces, and this one does not disappoint. On hand are Don "Red" Barry, Dwight Frye and Frank Orth in a prominent role, who is instantly recognizable as, say, the bartender in numerous films.
"Think It Over" is good, representative entry. The story takes a melodramatic turn towards the end to a predictable outcome. It is just long enough at twenty minutes and avoids making a pest of itself.
